The answer to this question lies in the question itself. You probably realize that not complying with medication and alcohol comsumption can complicate the treatment of anxiety. Both the factors have independent effects on anxiety disorder.

Ideal scenario is to quit alcohol and comply with treatment. Any deviation from this will be exposing you to the risk of relapse or recurrence of anxiety problems. Of course, we cannot always live ideal lives, can we?

It is advisable not to skip doses as you may have withdrawal effects, also try and abstain from drinking alcohol.
